Although visible radiation from the sun didn't rise appreciably, emissions at shorter, high-energy wavelengths increased substantially.
A solar-blind photo-detector has high sensitivity to ultraviolet radiation, but no appreciable response to visible radiation.
These LEDs deliver narrowband 415 nm visible light with high spectral purity, meaning that no UV, IR or inappropriate visible radiation is delivered.
